GB's Blake wins 400m silver in Doha

Paul Blake secured the sixth IPC Athletics World Championships medal of his career when he won T36 400m silver in Doha on Friday.

The men's team captain ran a season's best time of 54.58 seconds as he finished runner-up to defending champion Evgenii Shvetcov of Russia.

Blake made a strong start, but Shvetcov moved away and went on to claim another gold in a championship record time of 53.72. Ukraine's Roman Pavlyk made a late push for silver but Blake held him off by two hundredths of a second.

"I can't complain about a silver medal," said Blake, who was also runner-up to Shvetcov two years ago, having won 400m gold at the 2011 World Championships.
